References Sheet Sample

Purpose: To bring to interviews as a leave-behind when you are asked for your references

Quick Tips for Writing a References Listing:

The document below is an example references listing in the format to be brought to interviews with you and left when asked for your references. Never send your references with your resume. Always wait until the interview. We recommend that you include at least six references who will be able to comment on various aspects of your career, your strengths, and your accomplishments. Make certain to always ask the people before including them on your references sheet! This is important. A good way to phrase the question is to say “Would you be willing to serve as one of my references, and if so, do you feel you would be able to give me a good reference?” Rather than just listing names and numbers, it is a good idea to include a few sentences indicating the relationship you have with the person and what he or she may be able to comment on.

This example references listing is just a sample to show the quality and style of our work.

Sorry I haven't got back to you sooner. I have been busy interviewing. I am on the brink of an offer in Boston and Pittsburgh. Boston is the role I'm hoping for. It is a great role with a world leading paper manufacturing company. I believe the resume and cover letter you prepared was very helpful in my job search. It clearly was far better than what was proposed by xxxxxxxxx consultants - the outplacement firm that I was working with. I got a lot of attention from headhunters after the first wave of your blast e-mail. Many discussions but nothing that came from it -- mostly match issues. Thanks for your support and I will keep in touch.

All of the folks I spoke to while trying to decide to use DCS and while preparing my resume and bio with DCS were just great. They are all very personable and professional and quite knowledgeable of the DCS products and services. I am happy with the resume prepared for me by Sharon Green. Her first draft only needed a few modifications to get to a completed draft. I appreciate her patient nudging to move me along in providing input to her. Also, it was so good of her to quietly listen to my description of my job duties and experience so that she could weave those tings into my resume and bio. Thank you Sharon!! I was at first very tentative about using a professional resume service. But DCS customer support personnel were very good in addressing my concerns and alleviating any anxiety I had about using DCS. In the end I feel that DCS has given me a much better resume and bio then I would have drafted myself. I am confident that the DCS product will help me greatly in obtaining another position. Friendly, professional, helpful and empathetic personnel at DCS.

The job search has ramped up into high gear since I starting using the resume you prepared for me. I interviewed today for a position as a Property Accountant with a real estate management company. My "skill set" was a great match with what they were looking for, so thanks for your efforts. I feel confident I will be offered the position. Thanks again, I'll keep you posted.

Michelle - Thanks again for the services provided, although I will not have to use my resume at this time it is very empowering and encouraging to know that it is ready to go. The quality has exceeded my expectations and I will share that with folks I mentor or colleagues looking for similar services.
